JAI 140 Just add chevrons

Hello there,
well life is returning to its familar patterns here with the return to school and I'm hoping that means I will be able to return to my familiar patterns of stamping :) I did seize the chance before the chaos of the holidays to prepare something for this weeks Just Add Ink challenge which is - Just add chevrons. Sounds like fun doesn't it! Here is what I came up with in a late night change of mind brainstorm.

This was not what I originally had in mind, in fact my plan was to have used the thin border chevron die cuts. But as I cut them and then lined up my rainbow of colours (did you pick the rainbow sequence ?) I noticed the pattern of the negatives, and then my eye fell on my floral framelits - and so this card came about. With the idea there I just had to make it and so once I had my Mr 4 asleep I pulled out all my bit and pieces and got to work. I was a happy camper when it was done :) Tired but happy. Actually just looking at the colours makes me smile.

Hope you can have as much fun as me when you add chevrons this week! Don't forget to check out the awesome ideas that the rest of the JAI DT have come up with.
